Doctors vs Barbers

Just me at yet another doctor’s appointment. This one was at a dermatologist last Friday due to a rash that was spreading. Had to make sure it wasn’t a psoriasis flare. Next week will be an injection at the Orthopedic Surgeon’s office. Life with chronic illness is a never ending series of doctors.

You may have noticed a change from my post My Realization. In that post I looked like this

I finally paid a visit to a barber and now I look like this

I think I prefer the scruffy look. What do you think?

Visiting the barber is much more relaxing than visiting any doctor. Barbers deal with the part of my body that doesn’t hurt-My Hair. Barbers are better at small talk. Barbers cost less. Maybe I should see a barber for all of my health concerns. lol

Joking aside, I am grateful for the good doctors Jesus has led me to. The Rheumatologist at UNMC is excellent. The Dermatologist office has two good ones. The Orthopedic Surgeon is great. It is just the barber doesn’t stick me with needles, draw blood, or move my body to see if something hurts. I always wonder about that. For example, tell a doctor a knee hurts and the doctor wants to bend the knee. I mean really can’t they just take my word for it. lol

I will continue to go to both doctors and barbers, but I do prefer one to the other.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

      1. It’s hasn’t fully kicked in, so I still have pain running down the leg. I do think it is better though. I am disappoointed, but i read it could take up to ten days after the procedure to work, so I am still hopeful. I am still attending college courses, as I work on a Master of Art in Religious Studies at GSU. I thank the Lord that I can still do my work.

  1. Hey, great to hear the doctors appointment are going as plan. Praise Jesus and I pray the Lord will heal you and less hospital and more barbers.

    I love the new haircut, brings out your whole face and makes you handsome even with the mask πŸ™‚

    Hope you keeping well, Big Bro

      1. It is raining this week and I say showers of blessings.
        I don’t mind the weather preference is summer but it is nice to have the variety πŸ™‚ it spice things up!

  2. Back in the day, barbers used to offer a few other duties. Some also provided dental, medical, and surgical services. I am more happy that they just concentrate on cutting hair.
